* 2005-07 long wheelbase van seats folded down, but the number is likely identical.

These minivans were built in Windsor, Ontario and St. Louis, Missouri. In 2004, tire size on cargo van (optional on some other models) were 215/65R16. SE, SXT, and eX used standard 215/70R15. (Other tire sizes not listed.) Wheels on SE were 15 x 6.5 steel; on cargo van, 16 x 6.5 steel; on SXT and eX, 16 x 6.5 cast aluminum. (These wheels were used on both wheelbases.) All models used vented discs up front; all but cargo vans, Grand Caravan SXT, and and Grand Caravan eX used drums in back, with these models using solid discs.

Gear ratios: 2.84, 1.57, 1.00, 0.69. Final drive ratio: 3.62 with 3.3, 3.43 with 3.8. OTGR, 2.49 and 2.37 for 3.3 and 3.8, respectively.

AWD was available on Grand Caravan SXT, using a bevel-gear center differential with a viscous coupling and variable torque split; the rear differential was open.

Electrical: 140 amp alternator standard, 160 amp with rear a/c, fog lamps, heated seats, and/or trailer towing group. 600 CCA battery standard except with 3.3 not having tow group — in that case, 500 CCA. (Specs show a 600 amp battery for the 2.4, this is probably an error; in any case, none are likely to still have their original batteries now).
